With a laid-back atmosphere, professional but unpretentious bartenders and an overall no-frills approach, the Chart Room has long been a locals' oasis in the middle of a touristy section of the Quarter. Having one of the city's best jukeboxes — featuring local favorites from James Booker to Honey Island Swamp Band — doesn't hurt. Open daily. Smoking allowed. No food.
